The Southwest Florida (SWFL) area offers numerous options for theater enthusiasts, including The Laboratory Theater of Florida. This theater presents a variety of movie spoofs and original productions that are sure to leave you entertained. They welcome auditions for all ages, and my son Zach Hendra has participated in many productions such as "The Tempest," "The Birds: A Parody," "She Kills Monsters," and "Saving Hamlet."

In addition to its regular productions, The Laboratory Theater of Florida also hosts a theater camp for kids, where they can learn about acting, production, and more. This year, the camp will be featuring "The Squirrel Girl Goes to College" from June 24th to July 12th at 1634 Woodford Ave, Fort Myers, FL. The camp runs from Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm, with performances scheduled for July 11th, 12th, and 13th at 7:30pm, and July 14th at 2pm.
The current show is "Crocodile Fever." It's about Alannah's quiet life in 1989 Northern Ireland being disrupted when her rebellious IRA sister comes home. The sisters are forced to confront their father's legacy, and all hell breaks loose. This dark comedy is fueled by alcohol, 80s music, and a chainsaw! It's a must-see of the season! Get your tickets; you don't want to miss out!
